New Year Celebrations in Looe
Known for its fancy dress tradition, fireworks and New Year’s Day swim, Looe knows how to celebrate New Year in style.
Here at Polraen in the Looe Valley, you can enjoy the quiet cosy comfort of a historic Cornish licensed country house with a spacious guest lounge, dining room conservatory and plenty of onsite parking. Wake from a peaceful night’s sleep to a sumptuous breakfast in the conservatory overlooking beautiful gardens.
Yet you can also reach Looe in minutes to join the New Year celebrations. Polraen is served by bus, Looe Valley Line train and taxis.
Looe’s New Year Fancy Dress and Fireworks
Looe’s fancy dress and fireworks tradition turns the whole town into one brilliant party. You really are a bystander if you’re not in costume. There are two firework displays set off from the Banjo Pier. One at 6 pm to cater for families and of course the big one at midnight. Looe Beach is the busy venue due to its proximity to the town but one of the best vantage points is at Rock Towers at West Looe overlooking the river mouth and bay.
We recommend booking a table at a restaurant so you have somewhere in town as a base and booking taxis in advance. We are happy to assist with reservations. Of course, Polraen is the perfect place to relax if you prefer to see in the New Year quietly. Here you can relax in a spacious guest lounge, bring in your own New Year’s Eve picnic to dine in the conservatory.
Looe’s New Year’s Day Swim
You can swim, wade or dabble a toe, wear what you want although fancy dress is preferred.
Planning is currently in full swing for Jan 1st 2019 New Year’s Day Swim. Everyone is welcome. The aim is to start the swim at 11am. Prior to that turn up from 10am to sign the RNLI waiver form.
So Book Now to celebrate and relax at Polraen Country House on a New Year Short Break in Looe. We look forward to welcoming you.
